Those Cute Glitter iPhone Cases Being Recalled – Causing Horrible Burns
If you’ve bought one of those glitter-filled iPhone cases, you need to return it immediately. They’re being recalled because people are getting bad burns.
The case, specifically manufactured by ”MixBin Electronics” is being recalled by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission because the liquid glitter can easily start leaking and cause terrible skin irritation and severe burns.
All cases purchased as far back as October of 2015 for iPhone models 6, 6s, and 7 are affected.
If you’re wondering how severe the burns can be, photos of what can happen are posted here on goodfullness.com, it’s pretty severe. They report there have been 24 reports of some form of burn from the phone case.
